Manufacturing Engineer - ESP
Provide technical expertise and leadership to improve the performance of plant process equipment through the application of appropriate tools, methods and resources. Use root cause analysis (RCA) methods to identify reliability of the overall manufacturing process. Identify & analyze key performance metrics relative to accountable for improving them. Work with the production scheduling and operations team in identifying process choke points and overall capacity constraints. Identify & maximize resource management opportunities to minimize downtime associated with planned events such as Change Overs (C/O’s) and Preventive Maintenance (PM) activities. Responsible for identifying day to day as well as strategic improvements and developing applicable strategies and action plans to resolve. Lead process related capital projects from design and implementation through to follow up stage. Utilize, train and lead others through defined manufacturing/Engineering and tools and methods such as Lean Manufacturing, SMED principles, value stream mapping, kaizen events, Condition Based Monitoring (CBM) Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) and Routine Equipment Care (REC) programs. Responsible for developing and reviewing equipment specifications or design parameters to ensure equipment can meet reliability objectives. Carry out life cycle cost analyses to determine cost effective strategies for replacing or rebuilding assets or components. Work with the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling (MPS) team to develop both the Asset Health Management foundation and the Work Execution Management work streams supporting the asset base. Work with the MPS team to develop, evaluate, and make changes to equipment maintenance plans and develop job plans for specific rebuild needs. Champion reliability efforts through training, coaching and mentoring others and identify reliability tools needed for the process or task.
